Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I do not recommend this hotel, the location is so-so but the rooms are not really good. There are a lot of pro's... around so it's not a good place for kids or families, they're not cheap and the beds and bathroom are dirty and smelly :(

I was very disappointed in the property upon arrival but since it was 4 o’clock in the morning we were all so tired we stayed and they had already charged me for the first night. I think the most noticeable thing is that I did not feel the place was clean enough and does not meet COVID cleanliness. Stain on the doors which a magic eraser would have taken care of. I just felt creeped out by the whole experience during my stay. No special staff in my opinion and I definitely will not stay there again. Toilet plugged, pool was not cleaned when we checked to go in the day after arriving. I saw the current rating of the hotel a 3, but I would downsize that to a 1 personally.

The hotel is looking pretty tired but seems to be used by Panamians more than tourists. My room was clean but the toilet didn't fill without using a hose which should have been for a bidet . The hot water worked in the shower but the pressure was pretty low. TV was good and the bed was comfortable enough. The strange part was just the level of dirt around the pool, and on the stairs in the building and at the main entrance. The staff didn't seem very enthusuatic but the breakfast in the restaurant was okay. The swimming pool on the roof looked clean but the circulation pump wasn't working. Road noise from Via Espagna is pretty loud. If one a budget it works okay and I might stay there again. About a 5 minute walk from Igleasia del Carmen Metro station and about a 20 minute walk to Via Argentina and the restaurants there.

Room Tip: Higher floors should be quieter. Try to get a room not facing the street maybe.

I think that this was one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. The website for the hotel would definitely merit a 3 star rating but the hotel itself would not merit a single star. Most of the items listed in the website in the General, Activities, and Services sections do not exist. The list of items in each room is woefully inaccurate and the room was very poor, from the curtains in the room held up with staples to the thin, inadequate bath towels.

Booked a room for about 2 weeks. Room has mould on the ceiling, air conditioning is so loud it is hard to sleep. The breakfast staff may as well not be there. It took nearly an hour to get pancakes, I was completely ignored. Receptionists were generally rude,

I spend 1 week in hotel Montreal. The only good thing is the location, near metro station, shops, 24 hours huge supermarket. But no safe during the night, no people around only weird ones wandering offering strange things to a single tourist lady. The hotel is old and dirty. Rooms facing the street have always a lot of dust all over and its very noisy but there is everyday cleaning. The room was full of bugs which are crawling on the furniture. The smells from the kitchen are coming to the hall. A tv was not working, bed linen smelled like haven't been washed previously, uncomfortable and dirty bed . Reception desk staff is very unpolite, exept one lady I have't seen a single smile from the others for a whole week. They didn't want to change me the room, only offer was room without a window and airless with a noise coming from the ventilation system. There is a small pool at the rooftop but the water was so dirty so not possible to swim. I don't recommend this place, it's a dump. The worst I ever seen, staying there was a nightmare!

Old, smelly furniture, extremely loud air-conditioning, TVs with screens that don't show channels in a proper quality, I didn't get a blanket, there were no sockets to charge the phone near my bed, shower door was a bit dangerous to manouver, and I had mosquitos in my room, which ruined my night. I found another hotel at lower price being of much, much higher quality! There is one great thing - the swimming pool on the roof with a magnificent view of the skyscrapers. But that is the only one thing!

My friend and I booked two separate rooms through Expedia at the last minute and checked in late. The staff wasn't very friendly nor did they seem too interested in their tasks. Once I got to my room, I immediately noticed how run down my room was. The walls were dirty, the bed cover was worn and tattered and there were no towels available in my room...zero!! The room was noisy as well because of the old a/c system. I seriously wasn't too sure of the sanitariness of the bed sheets given the condition of my room. Went over to my friend's room afterwards and same complaints except his bed cover had huge holes throughout...unbelievable. I generally am tolerant of the occasional older hotels while travelling abroad but this place was a dump to say the least. I've never seen such a run down place in my travels and have certainly slept in much cleaner and nicer hostels than this place. The pictures posted by others on this hotel are spot on. My friend and I immediately checked out and went to a nearby Doubletree Hotel afterwards. The Montreal front desk staff asked why we decided to check out quickly and when I told him, he shrugged and didn't seem to care as if he had seen this happen numerous times. Travelers beware. This easily has to be the worst hotel I've seen ever, period.

I stay one night here looking for some relax of the crazy city and this was just terrible. I wish the could give me back my money and I sleep on the street. First the staff was horrible they have 0. The clean is the worst evert, everything dirty they didn't clean the room, just change the sheets and the new ones was with a lot of black and red point and also hair of other people. Thanks god the air conditioner was working. The showers dirty as well, the manager ugly face if you request for something a change or what ever they wanted me to wait until 4pm to check in because the room wasn't ready. Pool area looks like they forgot this exist, no paint, old seats, and very crowded. It was a bad experience at all. I couldn't relax in any way. They definitely should pay to the people for stay here. I'll recommend the owner who probably really don't care this place, be a bit more human and serious and fix this place because it let a bad taste on the mouth of Panama at all. The view of the room was quite of decent so I just spent the time watching to the street.
